I am confused, are you testing the server or ar you hardening the server?

Your email sort of implies hardening, but you are talking about
BackTrack which suggests testing...

Dear list,

I have already done a lot of google search but at the end I am very
much confused about security tools. I want to secure a remote linux
server ( suse 11.2 ) which running apache, mysql, postfix+dovecot,
squid and also regurarly take backup ( ssh+rsync) from another server.

I have already implement iptables firewall, monit, ssh2 with root login
disable, nrpe, regular checking by chkrootkit and rkhunter by cron.

But implementing security measures don't provide peace. I need more
tools !! And where I am confused. What else should I have in my
collection ? One very good linux distro is Backtrack which have a lots
of such security tools but if you don't know actually what is there you
can't use backtrack. It will take bit more time to flip through it. So
you security experts please show me the way. Please advice me what else
I must need and what are the tools already thetre in backtrak linux ?

Thanks
